Case study: automotive industry — automatic labelling of vehicles

‘Various assembly applications from the automotive industry — automatic labelling of vehicles’
At the BMW plant in Regensburg, Germany, 860 BMW 3 Series cars are assembled per day and placed in intermediate storage in a high-bay warehouse. Until recently it was necessary to manually identify each vehicle and attach assembly orders to it before storage. In order to optimise the application of these labels to the painted bodies with regard to quality and cost-effectiveness, BMW was seeking an automated solution. It was in this context that two systems for automated vehicle labelling were created, in which Kuka KR 125 robots stick labels with great sensitivity to painted, and thus delicate, car bodies.
